091. Community

Honestly, I don't think it is too much to ask someone to take half an hour of one day of the week out of their schedule to do the dishes, wipe the table and take out the trash. And one week every six weeks to bring the trash to the curb and mop, if necessary. It is an absolutely ridiculous excuse to say, "well I'm not here half the time, I shouldn't have to do the same work as someone else who is." No, sweetheart, it doesn't work like that. You are living in a community of six people, and everyone needs to chip in. Now, we've gone easy on you because you did all the cleaning for three months—but this has been something like six that you haven't mopped or swept or anything. You tell me that you still do the dishes, well fine, then this will have you do them far less often. This is a community. We are a family. And whether we like it or not, you are a part of it.
